Preventing Underage Alcohol Use Part 2: Strategies and Recommendations for Prevention
April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Underage alcohol use remains an ongoing challenge facing prevention professionals. Rates of use have generally been in decline for many years; however, alcohol remains the most used substance among youth. It is still unclear the extent that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted underage alcohol use, although it is known that the pandemic has accelerated the social and behavioral conditions that make use more likely to occur. This two-part webinar series will provide an overview of the current state of underage drinking and related prevention efforts, with an additional focus on two particular age groups of concern: younger youth (ages 13 and under) and college-aged underage drinkers (ages 18 to 20).
This webinar will discuss prevention strategies for addressing underage alcohol use. It will cover both environmental and behavioral interventions, as well as opportunities to implement or expand policies and address the social determinants of health. The webinar will review both general strategies and those targeting specific populations of focus: younger youth (ages 13 and under) and college-aged underage drinkers (ages 18 to 20). Lastly, it will provide an overview of Federal underage alcohol prevention efforts.
